      Believing that free public libraries are essential to our communities, the Foundation for Southern Tier Libraries works to promote, fund, and support the long-term vitality of the Southern Tier Library System and its member libraries.

      The Foundation for Southern Tier Libraries supports initiatives for 48 libraries in five counties: Allegany, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, and Yates. These libraries welcome more than one million visits each year. The Foundation awards grants directly to libraries in the Southern Tier region. Your donation will support important programs offered by local libraries and services shared through the Southern Tier Library System.

      These include:

      Story Hours
      Summer Reading Programs
      Delivery of requested books to your local library
      Internet access on public computers
      Free downloadable eBooks and audio books
      Right from the beginning, the Foundation awarded grants directly to libraries in the Southern Tier region. Since 2013 grants have helped fund:

      Storyhours and lapsit programs
      Innovative services like a seed-lending library and a bike fix-it station
      Development of programs such as fiber arts
      Books and iPads and Legos and all sorts of library materials
      Mobile computer classes providing technological education for all generations
      By contributing, you are supporting vital resources offered through your local library. These libraries serve everyone from babies to seniors. Be a part of this legacy.
